Cinema Saturday #46-Field of Dreams
So the movie inspiration for the Cinema Saturday Challenge is the movie Field of Dreams. This is one of my favorite movies because of the message that it gives and because it is set in the Midwest. For you guys that live "across the pond" or that live in different parts of the US, I am going to tell you a little bit about the Midwest or the place that I call home.
There are gently rolling hills of corn, soybeans and woods. The countryside is dotted with white farmhouses, windmills, barns, silos, small country churches... Today there are huge, puffy, white clouds against the blue sky. Of course there are more subdivisions, cities... popping up but I will always love Indiana in any season!
OK back to my card! My inspiration is the character Moonlight Graham. I love him because he was a country doctor that gave up his dream to play baseball to help people. I took a glossy panel and rubbed on blue ink with a cottonball. I rubbed a cottonball and a Qtip in Versamark and embossed the moon and stars with Stardust embossing powder. I drew the corn (don't laugh!) with an embossing pen and embossed them. I printed the saying on a tranparency and attached it. You were supposed to add red stitching to your card but I thought that would look out of place on this card (Sorry Brooke and Sankari!) I have went on long enough, thanks for stopping by!
